Volunteer STEAM Coach Training

Submitted By: Rachel@tbnep.org – Click to email about this post
Support experiential STEAM education opportunities for Tillamook County students by becoming a volunteer STEAM Coach!

This Volunteer STEAM Coach Training is for new and returning STEAM Coaches who want to volunteer for spring and summer programs. Register for the training here: www.eventbrite.com/e/steam-coach-volunteer-training-tickets-512274465717

Across the county, a partnership of 20 local organizations works together to provide a variety of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, mathematics) programs to Tillamook County K-12 students. Together this partnership offers students numerous experiential education programs including environmental science field trips, farm-to-table school gardens, science fairs, cultural programming, research projects, professional development, and more. Each year, hundreds of students participate in these programs, which are made possible by volunteer STEAM Coaches.
In order to offer these community-enriching programs, the TC STEAM Partnership needs volunteer STEAM Coaches to fulfill a variety of roles. STEAM Coaches are people who believe all students should be able to learn about STEAM subjects through educational experiences that are hands-on and inquiry-based.

STEAM Coaches don’t need to be experts, they just need to be passionate about helping students learn! We look forward to seeing you at our next training!

This training will include an orientation session for new STEAM Coach Volunteers, a discussion group focused on past volunteer experiences for returning STEAM Coaches, a history tour of the USCG Boathouse, a catered lunch, and hands-on demonstrations of upcoming field trip activities.

For questions about this training or if you cannot attend but would like to learn about future opportunities, please contact Rachel@tbnep.org.

The TC STEAM Partnership organizations that are co-hosting this training and sharing volunteer information for upcoming programs include:
Tillamook School District #9
Friends of Netarts Bay Watershed, Estuary, Beach and Sea (WEBS)
Tillamook Estuaries Partnership
Juntos Afuera
Food Roots
Garibaldi Cultural Heritage Initiative
Heart of CARTM, and more partner organizations.

Ready to Get Out of Your Own Way?

Submitted By: meredith@meredithlrichardson.com – Click to email about this post
Do you get in your own way?

Maybe you’re a perfectionist, feeling like your work is never good enough, afraid to show it to others unless it’s absolutely perfect.

Maybe you’re really good at giving to others, and really terrible at asking for your needs to be met. You have trouble delegating but wish others would do more.

Maybe you’re feeling anxious about certain tasks, and so you procrastinate and avoid them, and maybe you’re not even sure why you’re feeling anxious.

Our childhood experiences leave wounds that affect how we interact with the world. And when we heal those wounds, we see the world differently.

You don’t have to struggle anymore. It gets to be easier.

I’m offering a group taster hypnotherapy session at the Tillamook SBDC on January 25, 2023, at 4:00 pm. It costs just $20 to take part. To register, email me at meredith@ideation.guide.

And if you’d like to just jump in and start working with me individually, I have 3 spots open. 1 conscious strategy session + 1 hypnotherapy session = $414. Email me at meredith@ideation.guide to grab your spot!

“You can take control of your emotions by moving your body. Emotions are a physiological response within your body perceived by the brain. Moving your body has a positive impact on your physiology, which helps shift your emotions. MOVE YOUR BODY, MOVE YOUR BRAIN” @brainchat

Come dance it out, let the music move you. This is a drop in, open session, meaning: come as you are, when you can, anytime between 3-5PM, stay for 10 minutes or stay for two hours. Just move your body in whatever way it wants to with frequency specific music that will help you move out whatever needs to go.

LNWC Annual Meeting and Speaker Series

Submitted By: info@nehalemwatershed.org – Click to email about this post
LNWC Annual Meeting and Speaker Series: The Role of Red Alder in the Oregon Coast Range w/ Andy Bluhm

On January 12th, 2023 the Lower Nehalem Watershed Council will be hosting both their Annual Meeting and a presentation w/ Andy Bluhm, OSU’s Associate Program Director of the Hardwood Silviculture Cooperative, who will share new insight into a common tree in the Nehalem Watershed, the red alder.

The LNWC’s Annual Meeting will start at 5 pm. The Annual Meeting consists of board elections, selection of board officers, and the Annual Report. All members are welcome to attend to vote in board elections. The Annual Report will be a summary of council activities in 2022 including progress reports on restoration designs, planting projects, and regional collaborations. It’s been a busy year for the council so we hope you’ll come early to learn about what we’ve been up to.

Andy Bluhm’s presentation on red alder will begin at 7 pm. This presentation will introduce the characteristics of red alder and summarize the ecological role that red alder plays in the Oregon Coast Range. We’ll look at how red alder fits into the big picture of PNW ecosystems then examine the red alder’s effect on diversity, site productivity, community resiliency, and ecosystem function. Specific emphasis will be placed on the function red alder has in riparian systems and it’s influence on riparian communities.

In addition to a B.S. in Forestry from the University of Minnesota and an M.S. in Forest Ecology/Silviculture from the University of Georgia, Andy has spent the last 20 years at OSU as the Associate Program Director of the Hardwood Silviculture Cooperative- focusing on the biology and management of red alder. Other research projects at OSU have included directing the red alder management program for the OSU College Forests, managing a long-term study on alternative silvicultural practices, installing and measuring a Swiss Needle Cast research plot network, and coordinating the PNW Permanent Sample Plot network. His main duties include everything from education and outreach, data collection to growth and yield modeling and everything in between. In his free time, he enjoys exploring PNW old-growth forests in pursuit of big trees.

Andy is an expert on this foundational tree in our watershed and will have a wealth of information to share with us. Hopefully, everyone will walk away from this talk with a new appreciation for Red Alders and the roles they play in the Nehalem.

Both the Annual Meeting and the presentation will be hosted on Zoom and are free to the public. The zoom link is us02web.zoom.us/j/83650617243 or on the Faceboook event at www.facebook.com/lnwc1.

You can also contact the watershed council at info@nehalemwatershed.org. A recording of this presentation will also be posted on the LNWC’s YouTube channel with our other recorded presentations. Just search for “Lower Nehalem Watershed Council” on YouTube.

Event Information: This event is FREE and open to the public. Find more information on our speaker series and the links for access on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/lnwc1).

You are invited to come dance in the theme –Showing up as we are: respecting what is showing up today, in ourselves, our community and in our world–as we honor and give thanks for that which came before.

“In dancing 5Rhythms you can track perceptions and memories; seek out gestures and shapes; tune into instincts and intuitions. They reveal ways to creatively express aggressiveness and vulnerability, emotions and anxieties, edges and ecstasies. They reconnect us to cycles of birth, death and renewal and hook us up to the spirit in all living things. They initiate us back into the wisdom of our bodies and unleash movement’s dynamic healing power.”

Dance for Healing – open dance sessions

Submitted By: Christy@cosmichealingnw.com – Click to email about this post
Hello!!!
This open dance session is for everyone! Come as you are, and allow the music to move you. When we are stressed or experiencing trauma, we often hold these things in our bodies, and movement is a wonderful way to release them. This is a non performative experience, meaning, the only thing required is to allow the music to move your body in whatever way it wants to. Please don’t allow worry or fear of judgement to stop you. Those who are new to dancing or using movement in this way are especially welcome. Let’s face it, the last few years many of us have been in survival mode and probably don’t even realize how this is affecting us physically, emotionally and mentally. Let’s come together and help each other release stress and tension in a safe environment, while having fun. Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Hope to see you there!!
